Simon Stevens, 38, was a healthy and active man who enjoyed his life alongside his partner, Lynne Male, and their three greyhounds. However, their lives were turned upside down in March this year.

Stevens, who hails from England, was unexpectedly diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma, a rare and deadly condition resulting from asbestos exposure. He was a well-loved employee at Jaguar Land Rover, and this month he lost the battle.

THE BITTERSWEET CEREMONY

Before he passed away, he married Male, his partner of 14 years. They said their vows and exchanged rings at Marie Curie Hospice Solihull with close family members standing around the hospital bed.

Male shared: "The wedding was initially planned to take place on October 28, but Simon became suddenly more ill on Tuesday afternoon, and the wedding was turned around in about four hours. It was special having our immediate family there."

ILLNESS CAME AS A SHOCK

The news of Stevens' illness came as a shock. It had a rapid onset and turned a healthy man into a shadow of himself almost overnight.

Stevens' wish was to raise money for a dog rescue center in Coventry Road, Solihull. The couple regularly volunteers their time and assistance at the Daybreaks Trust.

"Simon requested that we set up a fundraiser in his name. The aim being to raise money to go towards helping future proof and secure the kennels in years to come."
